Would you want your pickles to taste like fruit punch?
Somebody must like that notion, because Walmart has put fruit punch flavored pickles on their shelves this month. The retail giant calls them Tropickles.
“The modern-day couple, the pickle and fruit punch met on social media (they bonded over recipes on Pinterest, to be exact); now, we are celebrating their union on Walmart shelves,” the company said in a statement.
The company released a photo of Tropickles, showing what looks to be pickle spears in a reddish-colored liquid. They went on shelves in 1,200 Walmart stores across the nation July 14.
A jar sells for $2, labeled under the company’s Great Value brand.
